2010 Camaro Exhaust by Bassani Xhaust

I've had the Bassani Xhaust system on my car for awhile and love it. They did a video of it with the Dyno results. If you guys are looking for a great performance exhaust system with a nice aggressive sound check out Bassani's.

55tq on a cat back. I'd love to see some independent testing done on this lol. they mention in the video that they used a hyper tech tuner and a k&n cai along with it.

kind of a bogus video, like they are trying to say their catback alone provided the gains, and even then I feel the gains are a bit exaggerated. I just don't see that kind of torque gains coming without headers?

I had a bassani system on my Z and it made absolutely crap for power and was absolutely horrendous if you ever needed to adjust anything on it, so many pieces.. intake, plenum spacer, bassani dual exhaust and tune made about 20 hp over stock.. and most of that came from the plenum spacer.

I'd have to see independent testing as well. I don't see a K&N and HT tune making that much Tq. We all know that a catback doesn't make jack, over the OEM catback.

wow.... some of the hate on this board is ridiculous.

The claims are extremely believable.... for those na-sayers about the +55 lbs of torque, i have two words for you.... "torque" "management". You guys should probably educate yourselves before you go on bashing a company that has been around for as long as bassani has. They are a fairly mainstream exhaust company, and are also the only company to offer a true dual exhaust for the 4th generation camaro, that goes all the way back (and it actually goes over the axle too, to top it off).

So 25+ hp and 55+ lbs of torque from a CAI, catback, and tune. Not only is that believable, but I'd say it's modest.

On a side note.... maybe more sound clips of the exhaust? and is it offered in a 3" version? I kind of didn't get the sound of the exhaust in the clip.

danhr, I think you misread what I put. I was upset that they made a video about their cat back and posted those gains, and people like the OP missed the part of the video that mentions the tune and CAI. it's misleading for anyone that doesn't pay attention to the entire video.

.. and I had the bassani system on my 350z. the welds were crap but held together thankfully, just very sloppy looking. there were way too many separate pieces involved (installing high flow cats, changing out the diff pumpkin.. what a nightmare to get around the exhaust. essentially had to dismantle the exhaust anytime you had to work near it, which took some time.)

they never once replied to an email either, out of the few times I tried to contact them over non critical matters. I would have called if it was that big of a deal, but damn, no email support at all.

that is my experience with them. yours is obviously different, but that doesn't change my opinion or experience, so stop fanboying it up. there are always customers that receive a bad experience with any given company, just because you like them, doesn't make the experience any less valid.

Did you guys catch this comment?

"This is the GT Dominator Exhaust with Power "X" and Aft Cats for the 2010 Camaro made by Bassani Xhaust system"

High flow cats would explain the gains...

Tq management only goes to ~3k rpm, then it's completely off. It not like taking TM away and you magically gain 30+ ft/lbs of peak Tq. While Bassani may make a fantastic exhaust, the gains in a catback just aren't there. There's no "magical catback" that makes massive HP. That leaves a K&N and a HT handheld to make 55 Tq. Sorry, I just don't see it. Now if it does indeed swap out the cats, then that's a different story.

I have been looking at picking up an X pipe when I get my headers here in the next month....Borla and Bassani have great prices on your listing, but I have to ask why is the Bassani so much cheaper than the rest....it also almost looks like straight pipes. Curious to know the sound that is generated by their x pipe..

Right now i have the x-pipe and cat back. it's been on the car for about 6mos. As far as the sound i'm very happy with it,no drone, no problems. As far as price i'm not sure mybe because as far as lth go for the camaro "5th-gen" they are new in the market place ? I can tell you they look good. i hope they well be on the car by the end of the week?
